Homework due before class: upload notes on PLAN PGH to personal page on course wiki.

4:30-5:30 EST Andrew Dash and Justin Miller, Senior Planners, Pittsburgh present PLANPGH Process & Timeline + Discussion: How might student teams connect their semester project – LIFE2050 in PGHX.0 – to the PLANPGH Process?

5:30-6:00 EST Student dyads interview each other: What are your reactions, thoughts, questions about  PLAN PGH.

Compare & contrast different approaches to future visioning: PLANPGHRedesigning Singapore, Design2050, WBCSD  and other futures organizations and their work?

How might designers use/contribute to long horizon vision scenarios? How would you make

PLANPGH COMPONENTS MAP

PLANPGH COMPONENTS MAP

these Plans, Maps, Pathways & Tools  more useful/usable to accelerate & scale diffusion, acceptance, adoption/execution?

Make a concept map: What we like, don’t like, question, would change, agree with, disagree with, don’t understand, want to know more about. Compare, Contrast, Evaluate, Good/Not good about  these different approaches. Refer to the Heuristic Design Framework.(10+10+20).

Dyads present their consolidated findings.

6:00-6:15  EST Break

PLANPGH COMPONENTS NETWORK EFFECT

6:15 -6:30 EST All discuss best structure for semester project – Life2050 in PGHX.0: 

– By Components as in PLANPGH or Pathways as in WBCSD? Other?

– By PGH Neighborhood?

– By System MetaSectors? 

– How do (should?) PLANPGH goals link to/advance larger global goals like WBCSD, OECD, UN MILLENNIAL GOALS,  WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM, etc.?

-6:30-7:00 Dyads make a concept map: What we like, don’t like, question, would change, agree with,

disagree with, don’t understand, want to know more about. Compare, Contrast, Evaluate, Good/Not

good about  these alternative structures. Refer to the Heuristic Design Framework. Dyads present

their concept maps. All discuss project structures. Post concept maps on wall.
